Hello, I recently used my MBP to delete
(1) Photos off a SDHC Memory Card via Card Reader and
(2) 50-100G off a WD Passport Drive (FAT32)

When I use either of these devices, it says Memory Full, and shows 0.0MB space free. The files are gone. Therefore I cannot re-delete them on a Window's machine.

As I've seen on many forums, people teach the user how to re-format the device using Disk Utility into HFS+.

In my case, I do not wish to reformat anything, just regain the space I lost (Still have 200+G of Photos I do not wish to lose).

Please advise.

Thank You !

Plug the devices back into your MBP and then empty the Trash
